Hagia Eirene, Istanbul

The Hagia Eirene ("Holy Peace")is a Greek Eastern Orthodox church in Istanbul, one of the few churches in Istanbul that has not been converted into a mosque. Today it operates as a museum and concert hall.

The photo shows the apse of the church. Nearly all the decorative surfaces in the church have been lost.
